Yes, you read it right! In a throwback interview with Simi Garewal on her chat show, Govinda reportedly revealed that during his struggling days, he would go from office to office in search of a job. He said that once he tried to get a job at a 5-star hotel as a steward. However, he did not get the job as he couldn’t speak in English in front of them.
Elaborating more, the actor added that seeing his mother struggling to meet ends and raising six children made him become a star. Govinda added that there were several incidents that would hurt. The actor stated that he has seen her go through all this and he wanted to change it and change it fast.
Govinda also went on to say that although his parents were actors, there was a gap of 33 years between them leaving the film industry and him becoming an actor at 21. So by the time he entered the industry, many new producers had come who didn’t know much about his lineage. The actor had had to wait for hours to meet them. He understood why they’d talk or behave in a certain way but never let it come in between him and his art.
